A (very!) random selection of press coverage from the last (ahem) 25 years or so....
Some of these are interviews, some are book reviews, some are translated versions of my articles published by other people, some are quotes based on my articles on explainthatstuff, and some are interesting, fleeting mentions. There are many more reviews on the books page. My books are published worldwide, so a few of these pieces are in other languages. (But you do speak Slovak, don't you... so that's ok.)

I dropped out of academia and the citation rat-race many years ago and I don't generally write in peer-reviewed journals. But if you're interested in that sort of thing, you can find hundreds of "formal" academic and technical citations to my books (and online articles) through my Google Scholar profile and via Google Books. Take all this with a pinch of salt: like everything Google does, these are automatically aggregated and very flawed.
